-section, not necessarily representative, but people coming up to us and having a discussion about health care. last night we pulled in to paducah, kentucky, and it was just remarkable, the number of people who showed up. so, what we did, we asked the restaurant across the road to give us some chairs. we sat down under -- 20 feet from the bus, got our cameras fired up, and we had our own town hall meeting. here's just a taste of what we heard. we're here in paducah, kentucky. we are hearing different things from people wherever we're going, but i haven't found too many people around here who are opposed to reforming health care. >> i'm for the idea, but i don't think that congress and the president has done a good job of disseminating the information. i'm just hearing a lot of flak and not a lot of meat and potatoes. >> reporter: what about you? >> i think right now we have a lack of choice. i mean, health care's expensive. i mean, the average costs of the coverage i found more often than not are more expensive than the actual care. i would think any choice, any viable choice, would be better than what we
to weak people that they convinced to commit suicide, but at the end of the day, do they accept us as a jewish state proof. -- as a jewish state? . >> in on the complex -- armed conflicts, that our strategies and also psychological operations. in the counter risen efforts -- counter-terrorism efforts, and it may be an abstract question that requires an abstract answer, is there a viable strategy or tactical approach to the use of psychological the terence to deter -- psychological deterrence to deter the actions of terrorists? it is easy to think about the physical deterrents and protections of borders and so forth. how liable is psychological deterrence -- how viable is psychological deterrent to that that of nuclear and biological materials and so forth, and also to be armed aggressors? >> bill on the panel would like to deal with that? -- who on the panel would like to deal with that? >> on mondays, wednesdays, and friday's i am an optimist and believe that there are solutions to problems. one tuesdays and thursdays i am not an optimist, or in the words of mark twain, i am an op
in other words, dealing with one problem here as opposed to 100 problems is what you are asking us to do. >> please. >> thank you for coming. my question would be, what could you do to get the government out of our lives and let us use our god-given ability and talent to make things better for everyone. >> i suppose the easiest answer would be just to vote no on new programs. i think there are a lot of things out there already this year than to have the pill. .. i have found it easier to stop -- to cause problems for not getting larger and not establishing new problems and i found it to do with older programs. programs. being a person wants to limit government, i found the best way to do it was through the taxing policy. if you limit the money coming into the federal treasury, you will limit what can be spent to some extent. you are still having overspending. i do not by the principal that an increase the dollar of taxes is a dollar reduction in expenditures -- in the deficit. a dollar increase in taxes does not result in a dollar decrease in deficits. what it results in is probabl

, right and center agrow on, scare tactics have been used. >> cannot have a government program that is going to pull the plug on grandma. >> republicans have a better solution that will not put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government. >> a lot of people are going to die. this program of government options is going to kill people. >> and no one's trying to scare people with sound bites. i don't know any leaders in the house and the senator who have done that. yeah, strike two. then there was strike three. a republican party mailer being sent across the country with was surfaced online today. called the 2009 future of american health care survey and it claims to be a friendly questionnaire about health care, sent by, rnc chairman michael steele who promises that, of course, no one's trying to scare people, the survey questions about house reform include, "it has been suggested that the government could use voter re h registration. prompting fears that gop voters might be discriminated against for medical treatment in a democratic imposed health care ratio

of us. in the private insurance market when somebody who is not on medicare but doesn't have health insurance shows up at the hospital and the hospital gets the doctor and they treat the patient and they have to do big surgery, you think the hospital just swallows all that cost? they and the insurance companies pass it on. it's estimated that in the private insurance market individuals pay over on average $1,100 a year for all the people who are not insured in the system and pay for it in a very inefficient way because they are not getting the preventive care up front. they have to wait until the problem gets worse because they can't go to the doctor's office because what does the doctor office say when you call them up. what's your insurance number? i don't have one so it gets worse and worse and worse and they show up at the hospital, much more expensive. who pays for it, all of us through our insurance and medicare through the system so we're saying people have to shoulder that responsibility now, but you can't say to somebody who earns $25,000 a year that you've got to pick up t
